Medicinal Chemistry

What is Medicinal Chemistry?

Medicinal Chemistry is the interdisciplinary field of science that involves a team of scientists (including synthetic organic chemists, analytical chemists, biologists, toxicologists, pharmacologists, microbiologists, and biopharmacists) working together for drug discovery, design, development and synthesis of new pharmaceuticals.

Dalton Medicinal Chemistry Capabilities

Our Medicinal Chemistry was built on 35 years of strength and excellence at Dalton Pharma Services. Dalton Medicinal Chemistry is a highly focused team of committed, knowledgeable medicinal chemists with expertise in small molecule drug discovery and development.

Dalton Medicinal Chemistry augments your in-house expertise and capabilities, serving as an extension of your own R&D group and as a responsive and reliable partner. We work closely with our partners to design and synthesize compounds for their targets and assays, leading ultimately to the identification of development candidates.

Our track record of identifying novel chemical entities for your Drug Discovery and Drug Development pipelines has been demonstrated todate through three publicly announced partnerships with Biotech (BioRelix & Bikam) and Pharma (Boehringer Ingelheim).
